Sum 41 Has 'Motivation,' Talks About Changed America

By | January 7, 2002 at 12:00 AM

Sum 41 is following up the hit “Fat Lip” and its latest single “In Too Deep” with “Motivation.” The track is the third single off All Killer No Filler, and the video for the clip is being lensed by director Mark Klasfeld, who worked on the band’s previous two clips. It was shot last November in Los Angeles.

Sum 41 is set to embark on a U.S. tour starting in Denver on January 15 with Unwritten Law and Gob. The Canadian band is then set to tour overseas to make up dates postponed due to the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Drummer Steve Jocz revealed that America has been changed forever due to the September 11 attacks and the war in Afghanistan. “It’s never going to be the same. They can bomb Afghanistan for as long as they want, but this stuff…I think America is just going to turn into what’s happening in Palestine or Israel. It’s just going to be bombs everywhere, and people are just going to start doing this stuff all the time,” he said. “It’s just going to become a way of life. It’s not going to go away, and I think Americans haven’t grasped that idea yet. That your country is never going to be the same.”
